1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Evening all,

    im looking for a bench rest for perfect zeroing.

    i like the look of the caldwell lead sled but i can justify paying £200 for this.....

    so im looking for a cheaper option, the caldwell zero-max shooting rest, its £50 looks like just what i need.

    has anyone got one of these or something similar? are they any good?

    cheers

    i have never felt the need to buy one as they can be expensive and something i can manage without.
    however i have seen home-made ones of similar or even better quality built for less money.
    i recall seeing one made on youtube, the guy used some offcuts of garden decking, it didn't look saleable but was perfectly functional.
    i just had a quick browse on youtube and can't see the decking one but there are several others.

    Use a workmate, clamp the gun in it with a cloth for protection and this will give you perfect zeroing, unless your using a springer.

    A plate of MDF with 4 screws in each corners for adjustment and 2 V's to hold the gun, £200 saved ;)

    I sit on the floor in the kids playroom resting the gun on the little girls toy kitchen pointing it through the bifolds into the garden. Works for me, perfect zeroing every time. :D

    Hard to beat a front and rear bag, the MiyKit front bags on here are good and cheap.
    The £50 Deben things are useless in my experience.

    Perfect idea as Ken says,but as your body shape ,cheek position and stance may alter how the rifle performs in relationship to the Gun rest its always better to do a final zero check with you holding it!
